The Correspondent v4.4


Published 1984


AdvertisementBy 1984, Roger Wagner and his Roger Wagner Publishing (formerly Southwestern Data Systems) were household names to Apple II users. Not only had RWP/SDS produced a series of well-received software titles that mixed both utility and education, but Roger Wagner himself became a celebrity in the community through his 1980 column in Softalk and his eventual assembled book, Assembly Lines, The Book

Among the many products that debuted over the years, 1980's The Correspondent offered the same interesting mix of both utility (a capable word processor) and education (tips to help improve writing), the very things that Microsoft would eventually include in editions of Microsoft Word. Indeed, by 1984, The Correspondent became a prominent member of a package called The Write Choice which also featured Tut's Typer for typing improvement, The Analyst for improving your writing's readability, and even the venerable (paper) book, The Elements of Style. The Write Choice and The Correspondent competed competently and favorably with another of the well-known 8-bit word processors, The Bank Street Writer.

Special thanks to Roger Wagner and The Softalk Forever Facebook Group for their help compiling information for The Internet Archive.
